A few months in the future... The recent political going-ons has sparked another buying craze. You're gonna be hard pressed to find anyone selling them @ MRSP.


So you were charged full price on a gun you were told was new?

He'd be getting a call from my lawyer pretty quick... Theres no room for people like him in the gun industry.

I wouldn't have wanted one that every Bubba @ the gunshow had goof'd with either, but I can understand you wanting to get one in your hands, they're awesome rifles and I'm sure, used or not, that things still gonna treat you right.

i am trying to get a new one we will see what happens. if its meant to be i will find one. its funny cause when I called him up to confront him he said he would take it back and that he told me it was used. He did tell me it was fired after I had called him to tell him my check was in the mail but he still insisted that it was new with tags

Well that was not real cool on the seller. But given the state of the market right now its a sellers market. Right now, on gun broker they are going mid 3K range. I would hold on to it no doubt. AR's are like gold right now. Plus Sig makes a awesome AR peice as well. Take care o fit and it will last a lifetime.

I have a M400 and would LOVE to have a 716 but given the current state of market and the clowns AWB proposals, new AR's are quickly becoming extinct.

Nice score given availability being close to non existant! Double nice if you get both lol, definetly the more guns the better at my house.

It wasn't really cool for the shop owner to tell u it was new when it was a certified pre own but damn u paid almost 500 bucks more just because the rifle was fired 10 times.. You do realize that even a new rifle with the band around the grip has had rounds shot through it.
